I believe I've read somewhere where someone didn't actually use the OEM brackets to hold the cladding on the single cab and made some homemade ones instead. I was just wondering if any of you had a design or an opinion on the OEM vs homemade ones, as I am thinking about buying this set of cladding that doesn't include brackets :/. Also, does anyone have an idea how to mount this stuff where it won't blow off driving down the street without drilling holes in every panel of my truck? Thanks!

Minus the brackets, Gm used 3M double sided tape on all cladding to help hold it in place.

Double up on the 3M tape or anything you can find stronger. Ive had em go bad on me 3x or more. This winter I got sick of it not sticking  and jus took it off till spring.

Best to put the tape on in the summer. Got to use wax and grease remover to or it won't stick and stay. I had a lot of trouble out of my old truck. The molding on the 90 models. I painted the truck and put the molding on at a later date.
